Vincenzo Carannante, a partner in the firm’s Health Law Practice Group, has co-authored a chapter entitled “Hospitalization: Voluntary and involuntary” in the third edition of Principles and Practice of Forensic Psychiatry. Considered an essential and practical reference for psychiatrists and forensic mental health professionals, the handbook provides comprehensive coverage of the field of forensic psychiatry in the United States.

“Hospitalization: Voluntary and involuntary” appears in the section on Legal Regulation of Psychiatric Practice and explores the legal foundations of civil commitments, balancing the rights of individuals and the interests of individual and public safety, and the challenges of allowing for involuntary psychiatric confinement and treatment.
